    # 1 international bestselling diet book coming to North America

    Devised by Dr. Pierre Dukan, a French medical doctor who has spent his career helping people to lose weight, the Dukan Diet rejects counting calories and promises permanent weight loss while allowing adherents to eat as much as they like.

    Originally published in 2000, the Dukan Diet swept across France, championed by people who successfully lost weight following its unique four phase regime. The Dukan Diet has helped millions in France, where it has been number one for more than ten years and adopted in twenty countries, including the United Kingdom, Poland, Korea and Brazil. All together, The Dukan Diet has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide.

    The Diet: 4 Easy Steps to Permanent Weight Loss

    Phase one: Attack
    Using Dr. Dukan's True Weight calculator, dieters determine a reasonable and healthy weight loss goal. Then they begin the Dukan Attack phase a two-to-seven-day period during which only unlimited lean protein and a daily Oat bran galette (or pancake) are consumed and dramatic weight loss is achieved.

    Phase Two: Cruise
    Dieters alternate days of unlimited lean protein with days of protein combined with healthful vegetables until they reach their True Weight.

    Phase Three: Consolidation
    Dieters stay on this phase for 5 days for every pound lost. At this point the diet allows unlimited protein and vegetables, and other foods (such as cheese and bread) are reintroduced. Dieters are also allowed two weekly celebration meals to stave off boredom.

    Phase Four: Stabilization
    This is the maintenance portion of the plan, in which followers are allowed to eat whatever they like without regaining weight – provided that they follow 3 unbreakable rules including eating only unlimited lean protein one set day per week.

    For each phase, The Dukan Diet offers clear simple guidelines for long term success. The Dukan Diet is the perfect diet for people who want fast weight loss, that can be maintained without counting calories or weighing portions.

    • Love It!

      I was debating between this and the Ideal Protein weight loss program. Did the Ideal Protein for a couple of weeks but the prepackaged food was not to my liking. I switched over to this program after reading the book and could not be more please with the results. Very detailed book.

    • Just another Diet Book

      Book content was not for me. Some recommended food I had never heard of. I was looking for recommendations for simple basic foods. I think the book went into a garage sale. Don't buy it.

    • Great weight lose guide

      I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to lose weight, even if it's just 10 pounds. If you stick to the diet you will see great results!!! I lost 33 pounds in 4 weeks, my sister had 10 pounds to lose that she could not get rid of since she had her baby 2 years ago, she tried everything, this book got the weight off in no time and at the end of the diet you go back to eating anything you want.

    • The Duklan Diet

      Not very helpful. Too detailed. Probably good for Europe. Don't know about the US.

    • very helpful

      I was pleased that your site had the book. The only negative that I have is that it took a while before I received it. Just about 2 weeks.
